Meet Our Director


Welcome to the Stephenson Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma. Caring for you is our top priority. Our highly trained staff is dedicated to providing you and your family with the very best medical care and support services available.

We are raising the standard of care by creating a patient-centered environment, promoting cutting-edge cancer research, and advancing educational efforts both on campus and in our communities. Our care is based on multi-disciplinary teams of physicians and other health care providers who address the whole patient, not just the cancer.

As Oklahoma’s only comprehensive academic cancer center, research is an integral part of developing new therapies and improving cancer treatment. Opportunities may become available for you to enroll in one of our more than 200 clinical trials. At the Stephenson Cancer Center members of your healthcare team will be with you every step of this journey and are available to talk with you at anytime. Our goal is to work together to answer your questions and help you with your personal needs for comfort, care, and support. We want you to feel confident that you are at the center of a team dedicated to your journey to wellness. You are not alone.

The staff at the Stephenson Cancer Center understands this is a difficult and challenging time. We are here to help you. Please let us know how we can better meet your needs.

Thank you for choosing the Stephenson Cancer Center and giving us the opportunity to serve you and your family.
